I'm reinstalling second hand cubicles and we are short of posts. There iae type brand which bolt to rail. The rail is usually supported with post every 10ft can we go every 15ft and use the shed stansions. Cubicles are for bulling heifers. Just wanted 100 other opinions thanks.

I would say probably not. We fitted teemore cantilever types (I assume yours are cantilever cubicles) and we fitted the rails at 15' on every beam, but the rails were 76mm diameter, but where we used posts in the ground every 10' then the rails were only 60mm diameter.
Can you not buy some galvanised tube to match from a steel merchant? That is what we did for some second hand cubicles we fitted.

We’ve done 15ft bays no problem, we put a post in between on 16ft bays later on. This is for cows, I wouldn’t worry you could always stick one in after, even bolt to floor would be sufficient no that it was will be needed.
